Talking Failed Movie Toy Lines on the Nerd Lunch Podcast…

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the folks at the Nerd Lunch podcast to have an interesting conversation about failed movie toy lines… CT, Paxton, 4th chair guest Kirk from the Schlock Treatment podcast and I talk about what we think goes into making a successful movie toy line, what movie toy […]

Expanding my backstory on episode 47 of the Nerd Lunch Podcast…

The Nerd Lunch crew were gracious enough to invite me back on their show recently.  For the first time I was not only a guest, but also filling in for an unfortunately absent Jeeg, so I joined CT, Paxton and the special 4th chair for this episode, Mark Dury.  The topic is Expanded Universes in […]

Guest Hosting on the Nerd Lunch Podcast!

I listen to a lot of podcasts, but lately it seems like a bunch of shows that I love have been ending.  So I was pretty excited when I discovered a new show that featured some of my favorite bloggers coming together to geek out over the airwaves.  The Nerd Lunch podcast debuted this past […]

I put on my Sweetums costume and joined the Nerd Lunch crew for another podcast!

The Nerd Lunch podcasting crew recently invited me back onto their show to fill their revolving 4th chair.  This time we sat down to talk about the three original Muppet flicks (including The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper, and The Muppets Take Manhattan), though of course the conversation also touches on the show and […]

Podcasts

The Branded in the 80s project originally started out as a podcast, and even though I’ve moved on to writing on this site that doesn’t mean I still don’t enjoy the medium.  I’ve been a host, co-host or a guest on a bunch of different shows over the years and here is where you can […]

Thinking About Becoming a Professional Podcast Guest…

So, diving back into the online world after the last couple of months not only means more articles in the works at Branded, but I’ve also switched back on my microphone and honored to be asked to guest host (or take part on a panel) on a number of podcasts. First up, I was part […]

Spiriting the Nerd Lunch crew away to the world of Miyazaki!

Though I haven’t recorded an episode of the Branded podcast in awhile, I was lucky enough to be asked back to guest star on another episode of the Nerd Lunch podcast this week.  I’m not sure, but I think I might be on the road to eventually becoming the Charo of the nerdy/pop culture podcasting […]

He came, he saw, he podcasted, He-Man.

Recently the kind folks over at The Nerd Lunch podcast invited me back on the show to geek out on some more of our favorite topics.  The show features NL alums CT and Jeeg, as well as Paxton from Cavalcade of Awesome, and once again I had a blast! We spend the episode discussing the […]

PCP #12, CT from Nerd Lunch!

This week’s PCP spotlight is on Carlin “CT” from Nerd Lunch! I think I originally got to know CT through twitter a couple years ago, but I’ve been keeping up with the Nerd Lunch website ever since.  CT was a big supporter of the Up! Fair, the alternative/indie comics show that I helped put together […]

Awkward Toy Family Photos…

Though I’ve been more or less away from the site for the last few months, I’ve still been mucking about with some geeky nostalgic stuff.  In particular I’ve been having some fun on Instagram taking a series of photos of my current toy collection.  Since I’ve broken down and started picking up some more vintage […]
